Gus

Gus (Short Story) - David  Gilmore

I met David on Facebook through a mutual friend.  After he found out that I am an avid reader, he asked if I would be interested in reading his VERY short short-story and gave me the link.

It is a great story!!  The ending is so sad.  I would have liked it to be a little longer (everything goes by so quickly and I would have liked to learn more about Gus) and I can't help but wonder how more of a conversation with the lady in the story could have changed his view on life.  I like how David simply says that Gus was burned, but never exactly says how much of him is or describes it - your idea of Gus stems from the reactions that others have towards him and how he sees himself.  I can't wait to read more of his work.

Note: I received the link to read his story for free.  He did not request a review - just asked if I would be interested in reading it - but I think it's a good story and wanted to pass it on so others will read it as well.
